FungiShield is a revolutionary new protective barrier treatment that provides long term protection against the unsightly adhesion of mold mildew, fungus and algae. Applied to roofs walls, walkways, fences, decks and drive surfaces, etc. FungiShield prevents the adhesion of fungus organisms, airborne contaminants (food for growing organisms) and resists moisture penetration.

FungiShield technology is available in 2 formulas identified by their Surface Protection Factors (SPF), which includes both its years of protection and degree of effectiveness.

FUNGISHIELD SPF5+ = 5 Year Protection

FUNGISHIELD SPF2 = 2 Year Protection

Fungishield is an environmentally responsible solution which is water based and does not rely on potentially toxic and usually species specific fungicides, mildewcides or algaecides. FungiShield therefore provides a broad spectrum environmentally friendly barrier protection.





FUNGISHIELD technology is the result of more than 15 years of research. Its effectiveness in preventing the unsightly adhesion of mold, mildew, fungus and algae is supported by university controlled studies inside greenhouses as well as years of field use on a variety of architectural surfaces worldwide.

.... This entire barrel tile roof was pressure cleaned in 1993 and an 8 foot by 10 foot section in the upper right hand corner was treated* with FungiShield SPF 5+. This picture was taken 3 1/2 years later showing fungus and algae covering the roof tiles except for the FungiShield treated* area.

Fungishield is an effective long term clear protective barrier treatment against the adhesion of mold, mildew, fungus and algae on walls, walks, patios, drives, fences, roofs, decks - Most any surface.

FungiShield SPF 5+ is the ultimate in long term barrier protection. It is formulated with the highest grade materials available; an acrylic emulsion and specialized co-polymers, catalyzed for durability and longevity, that are resistant to weathering and U-V degradation, providing the maximum in barrier protection for 5+ years. SPF5+ can be applied to most any surface which will accept a water based latex coating i.e. roofs, walls, walkways, fences, decks and drive surfaces, etc. SPF 5+ keeps surfaces looking like new for years and carriers a 5 year Surface Protection Warranty (see warranty for details). 

FungiShield SPF2 is an economical barrier treatment for areas of moderate fungus and algae problems on masonry type surfaces, having a Surface Protection Factor of 2 + years. SPF 2 retards the adhesion and build up of mold, mildew, fungus and algae using specialized retractive co-polymers without the high grade acrylic emulsion and other components which give SPF 5+ its unequaled protection and longevity. SPF 2 was developed as an economical treatment for large scale applications to areas of less severe fungus and algae growth. SPF 2 also resists dirt and water born stains allowing pressure cleaned surfaces to maintain the just cleaned look for years.
